Former DeKalb County Commissioner Elaine Boyer will learn her fate this week.
She faces one to two years in federal prison for stealing more than $90,000 dollars from the county.
In September, Boyer pleaded guilty to funnelling $78,000 dollars to an evangelist who posed as a legislative consultant. Prosecutors say Boyer then received part of that money in kickbacks.
Boyer was also accused of ringing up more than $15,000 dollars in personal items on her county-issued purchase card. Boyer agreed to cooperate with an ongoing investigation into DeKalb County government, in exchange for a lighter sentence.
